Synetic Theater, “Dante,” Washington, D.C. (2009)


“In an unprecedented, ambitious production, Synetic Theater takes on the entirety of Dante Alighieri’s epic masterpiece, the tale of a lost traveler’s visionary journey through the torments of Hell and up the slopes of Purgatory, before the final attainment of redemption and Paradise. Delving into the core of Dante’s original work, this modern retelling will bring the Italian classic to life in a way never seen before.”    —Italian Cultural Institute
